Re: XJ40 4.0l crank but won't start

This is a 93 MY , LHD I tried the DBC10009 yesterday , everything seems ok. Pretty surprising , here's the situation : - injectors are ok - i've got sparks . From a simple point of view , if you have sparks, fuel and air , the only thing which could affect the combustion is the compression ?? I'm a...

Re: Dunkeld 2019/2021

I haven’t heard any news on this from JR.
I have messaged him to ask for a clarification.

Re: Daimler Double Six - 1993 - J6DXJ

I'm not sure the mounts on my rack have failed, the MOT said inner joints. The only inner-joints I can find seem to be made by Frontline but as Borg and Beck also re-badge them, so they can't be that bad. Am not sure what is meant by “inner joints”? Do you mean something inside the rack? If that’s ...

Re: 1987 Daimler XJ40, Moorland Green, low mileage

A bit of time for this one, this evening. Oil and filter. Clean up suspension/ replace front springs, as the old ones are tired/ too low. Replacements ready prepared. https://xj40.rvdz.me/images/4745/4745___5c3f9ecd5e1ee.jpeg https://xj40.rvdz.me/images/4745/4745___5c3fc8d6f0768.jpeg Plenty more to ...

Re: Changing heater control valve.

Hi Everyone, I manually operated the valve. It is operating normally, even though there’s a very slight leak. The fans are working fine. The both blow air at all speeds. Engine temperature is right in the middle. The air coming from the lower vents just isn’t warm enough and there’s not much of it,...

Re: Rear windscreen - seal and rust issues

This is what you want to try and avoid! Wow Naki that's a LOT of rust ... Curious to hear if you managed to sort it out, as I'm sure you did. Luckily mine is not as bad as that, but there are clearly some signs of rust and I'm dreading what I'll find once the windscreen's off ... Thanks for the inf...

Re: Looking to dip my toes back in

[ It’s another classic ad where a bit of effort on the cars presentation and the advert photos could add £500 to £1000 onto his asking price. It is constantly baffling how few people actually understand that. With so many cars presented so terribly, i suppose some people think thats normal/ OK for ...

Re: Looking to dip my toes back in

The JEC car looks horrible, the late one on c and c looks the part though The poor quality pictures, of a dirty car, certainly do not it any favours. But there may be a diamond in the rough? As usual the only way tot find out is to view. Its too much to expect any idea of the cars condition from th...
